Hair Extensions Generate Buzz With Colorful Controversy

by Melissa White
Licensed Hair Stylist

As you know, I follow anything that's related to hair extensions, whether it be the most recent techniques and training, new products, accessories that make wearing them more fun, or even to what celebrities are doing with hair extensions using color, styles and cuts. Celebrities have helped to shape trends with hair extensions including the use of feathers, color blocks, colored tips, braided extensions and more.

Lauren Conrad's "Rainbow Hair"
is created with Hair Extensions

Britney Spears recently created quite a controversy when she showed up for the huge iHeartRadio event in Las Vegas sporting brightly colored hair extensions. Some criticized her for wearing them, stating she was copying other artists, when in reality she's worn brightly colored hair extensions before. In her 2011 video she wore several colors blended throughout her hair.  Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Gwen Stefani are just a few of the many celebrities who have all worn brightly colored hair extensions. Lauren Conrad (shown above) created a look that many have rushed to duplicate.

No, vividly colored "fantasy" hair extensions aren't new, but they don't appear to be going away either! They're still appearing on celebrities and they are still very popular among younger women who want a bold or unique presence. They are available in a variety of vivid colors and can be worn as accent pieces, colored tips or as color throughout the whole head.
